If you like to wear hats that are a little fancier than baseball caps, travelling with them can be tricky. This packing trick makes it easy to pack your easily crushed hats in your suitcase.
When you want to take your fedora, bowler or sunhat with you on your travels, you can either wear them, carry them with you all the time, or pack them in the suitcase. They can be crushed pretty easily, however, ruining the hat. This trick, from Geneva Vanderzeil at the style blog A Pair & A Spare, can save the day. Roll or fold a sturdy clothing item and stuff it into the crown of your hat to support it. Then lay it flat on the bottom of your suitcase. Once you’ve done that, just start packing around it so nothing sits on top of the crown. When you get to your destination, your hat should be ready to wear.
